Hi! My name is Derek Skinner. I am a hardworking and dedicated individual with over 5 years professional working experience and a Bachelors degree in design. Strong skills in design/development; I love pushing the limits and making ideas come to life. Coworkers have described me as someone who is devoted to projects from initial concept to final delivery. My current title is Designer/Developer at CBS Interactive. If you're curious, find out more about me.
I feel that I have a passionate connection to design and problem solving. I love the challenge of connecting people with brands and keeping users engaged. I believe that all good design starts with a solid concept.
Like design, animation is another way to express yourself, and to connect your brand with its audience. A well thought out animation pops off the screen and delivers a memorable message to the viewer.
I taught myself coding skills to allow me to make my designs come to life in the form of interactive websites or prototype apps. From my past experiences, I have found that transforming a static design, to a functional thing is a very rewarding experience.
